Communication Theories and Other Curios (Chautauqua: Why Are There so Few Communication Theories?).
Berger, Charles R.
Communication Monographs, v58 n1 p101-13 Mar 1991
Identifies reasons for the scarcity of communication theories. Observes that early interdisciplinary forays did not result in communication theories but contributed to a view of communication as an applied social science. Argues that speech and journalism departments' appropriation of communication research has limited theoretical development. Suggests emphasizing theory development in graduate education. (SG)
